Eastern Market Art Series & Teachings: Charlie Visconage’s Hall of Artists
Sunday, October 6, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
This past May, Charlie branched out beyond painting with an immersive experience called FUNLAND at DC’s Hole in the Sky Collective. Charlie wants to bring that level of fun and the immersive blend of art and performance to the EAST community with The Hall of Artists.
The Hall of Artists will present the kids of EAST with the opportunity to create works in the style of pop artists like Andy Warhol, Frida Kahlo, Yayoi Kusama and Jackson Pollock. Once the kids are finished making these works, they will become those artists by dressing up like them in character and presenting their work as those artists to their parents. This workshop will feature artistic composition as well as improvisational acting for all participants, with a small “performance” element at the end of the workshop for the parents.
Charlie Visconage is an artist and immersive experience creator in Washington, DC. He loves making funny, brightly colored work. You can see and purchase Charlie’s work at www.visconage.com.
The Eastern Market Art Series & Trainings – EAST – is an ongoing series that brings artists and children (between 6 and 10 years old) together to explore a different craft or medium each month. Each workshop has volunteer opportunities for youth & teens (11 years old and up) to help support the workshop. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
